Threw this one in starting yesterday for the drive home. Made it through the first set. Franklins is ridiculous, a fantastic version of a tune that saw heavy play in '79. Jerry is on fire and no one has an extinguisher. Cassidy is a great one. Peggy-O is pretty fast, but still very nice.
Well, I thought, I'll spin the second set for the AM commute, not realizing what would happen. I think it was about midway throug the transition jam in the S>F that I began to feel the car rattle in a rather disconcerting way. Shrugging it off to poor road conditions I forged ahead. Then the Fire hit. The explosion of power and intensity that ensued enveloped me in such a feeling of pure joy that I was completely oblivious to my surroundings. It was only when I pulled into my usual parking spot and turned the stereo off that I realized something was wrong, very wrong: somewhere between Phil's opening Fire riff to Jerry's closing notes my car had been reduced to what can best be described as a unicycle. Don't think the warranty is gonna cover this one.
For the sake of my co-workers, I'm going to save the rest of this monster for the drive, er, ride, home. If I'm lucky I might be left with a pair of roller blades by the time I make it home.

Seems the boys always brought their best game to MSG. A real testament to the structual integrity of that building given how many times the roof got blown off.

Does it do the same thing when using the VBR M3U link under "Listen to audio" on the left?

Hey Ducats - Right-click on the VBR link and "save link as" to a predetermined folder. You can then open the folder and right-click on the link and select "Open with" and choose your desired media player(I use winamp). That's how I stream. I, too, prefer the power of EQ.

This also leaves me with a handy list of the shows I've streamed.

playing 10-15-83 by clicking on that link on the left + it sounds fine. maybe the first few shows i tried that way were just poor recordings? i dont know - but i'll start using it everytime and see what happens - it sure beats getting into the shower during help, only to come out and theres nothing playing - thx.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll listen to the Charlie Miller for this afternoon's paperwork week wrapup.

Fall '79. The gift that keeps on giving long after you open the present.

Following up for those who may or may not care.

Durning my commute home last night, the "Eyes" created such a maelstrom of furious, yet delicate, energy that it enveloped me in a pulsating corona of pure delectation.

Let's just say that I was given a wide berth on the road home.

I will say this: don't you just love the feeling, though as you note, sometimes a bit disconcerting, of arriving somewhere with a distinct sense of "how did I get here?" because you were utterly wrapped up with the amazing sound coming out of your car sound system?

79 or not, I can defn relate to your experience...and, the rough road conditions of late round town; all those signs "your bail-out/stimulus funds @ work" or whatever? Regardless of who's paying for it, for the relative youth of our city, it certainly has some rough patches (of course, all you northland dwellers don't need to remind me of what snow, ice and salt can do to a paved road...I know, I know--it's much worse).

Just sayin, if the scorpions or the elderly gents from Sun City West of West driving TEN mi under the speed limit don't get ya, the unexpected rough road with ten workers for every one job standing around just might...

Agreed.

Shows seem to hit me in two different ways: kind of a left brain vs. right brain thing. Some shows will appeal to the more analytical side, really getting into dissecting songs into individual parts, such as focusing on the amazing work being done by Phil or Billy. Then there are shows like the one referenced above that almost entirely hit the right brain; focusing on the overall power of the entire show, the emotional punch delivered by the whole band over the course of 2.5 hours. It's the Right Brain Shows that pose the greatest risk to my furnishings, while the Left Brain Shows seem to spark the more detailed discussions around here.

I love it when there is JUST enough paperwork for a rollicking Half-Step>Frank.
